  1. I mean, have you EVER seen something put on ideascale, been solved in a Firmware update? Do you know the latest firmware release date? It is 4/9/15. What do you think about that?
  2. Yes, I agree. In the new upcoming helix there's the "mode" switch. Why not replace the totally unusable looper switch with a MODE switch. I don't think it could be impossible for line 6 to program this feature...
  3. THAT'S GOOD NEWS!! How long for testing it in shops???
  4. Let's talk about the effects: did Line 6 create new algorithms for upgraded effects quality, or maybe the effects are the same as M13, HD500??
  5. Yeah, I know that at 0.0 there are 2 steps if you turn the knob. But I would like to choose the cents of the detune and make a double detune (-3 and -3) for a "fair warning" sound. Is it right that you can activate cents within the HD400 ??
  6. Hi everybody, I would like to create a patch with a detuned sound like van halen does. For this I would use the pitch glide, but you cannot set it in cents (0,01) it only works in decimal (0,1). I've read somewhere that you can do it with the hd400, i paste it here: "I have the POD HD 400 and it definitely has the pitch detune. I select Pitch Glide and don't control for the expression pedal then simultaneously pushdown and turn the adjust knob (not just turn). Pushing it down and turning engages .00 cents. I detune to .02 to get a great detune chorus" Is it true? Can I engage the cents in the HD500? Thank you evh
  7. I'm using my HD500 in FS mode and I have all my footswitches assigned with an effect. I would like to use them also for changing my amp channels via midi like on the M13 (scenes button). But I would like to choose if I'm sending a midi program change or activate/deactivate an effect (maybe using that absolutely useless "looper" button???) If I program a blank patch for the midi commands, I have to dance tip tap for switching channel and control the effects. How do you approach to this?
  8. Well, i've tryed this solution. If i put the return level at maximum and compensate reducing the output level, the trick seems to work. The only problem is that this way i send a very hot signal to the effects after the loop block and i still have to verify if it could be a problem. Thank you this is a good one.
  9. This does not work. If I set an exp pedal to the return parameter, when i close the pedal, the return does not mute. Unfortunately the return level at "zero" does not mean "no signal"
  10. Thank you, but this way the pedal controls the dynamic like using the volume knob, not the output level. I need to control the overall volume. Thanks anyway
  11. Hi everybody, I use HD500 for FX Only with my 5150 iii, connected in 4cm. I would like to assing the expression pedal as a volume pedal, but I don't want to loose another block besides the fx loop. I would like to assign something like the mixer level (but it's not possilbe) or the return level (but it goes only UP). Any ideas? Why did line6 set the return level to go only up?
  12. -Input1 is Guitar, Input2 is variax -Yes all fx are in PATH A with NOTHING before the split and nothing after the mixer. the mixer is at the end of the chain -Yes, PATH B is MUTED, the loop switch is set to LINE (i also have tried stomp with no results) -Yes I'm using FX RETURN L/mono and of course OUTPUT L/MONO panned all left (tryed also panned in middle with no results) -MIX is 100% I've tried also to increase FX LOOP RETURN from 0 to +6. There's no difference. It seems like you put something after the FX LOOP block but the HD500 does not put it PHISICALLY there. This evening I will try with a modded amp, I suspect it will work. Before buying this unit I have read many feedbacks around internet and I was sure I could use it AS an M13 if needed. But now I think it has its own signal routing and if you have a REAL AMP things may not work properly. maybe I'm wrong but I don't think that the only difference between M13 and HD500 is Expression pedal, amp modelling and number of FX in chain...
  13. Ok, I've tried, but it does not work. The result is the same. I've noticed that this problem is more pronounced with my 5150 iii distortion channels, it's like the effect placed in the loop is hitting a brick. Are we sure that this unit works good also with real amps? "Is there anybody out there" with this kind of problem?
  14. Thanks Huub, unfortunately It's the same. If I use my echo platter delay and use it after FX loop, it sounds weak and not audible. mix needs to be at least 70% and feedback 85% in this way i can hear only 2 or 3 repeats. If I put that delay before fx loop voilà I have multiple repeats and better quality. What am I missing????
  15. I'm reading carefully this thread: http://line6.com/supportarchivenew/thread/90441 What can happen if I increase the return level of my fx loop? I mean, maybe my problem is too little signal flowing from pod return to time based effects, and too much flowing from output to poweramp.
